CRAVEN skipper Mark Rooney enjoyed a stunning performance as his side demolished Coopersale by 182 runs at the weekend.

Rooney made 78 notout with the bat as Cravens totalled 215-6, before taking four wickets in four balls to finish with figures of 5-3 from eight overs, as Coopersale were all out for just 33.

Earlier, Rooney had been well supported by Roger Dyal, who made 54 before retiring, and Andy Griffin's 35.

Melvyn John was also in form with the ball, taking three wickets, while Alan Jarvis and Osman Ikram both picked up one apiece.
